GERMAN Model 98k Mauser bolt-action rifle # 6190aq (8x57mm) mfg. by Brno (code dot) in 1944.  At first glance a nearly as-new all-matching 98k with full bluing and an excellent mirror-bright bore.  At least that is what it was represented as in a recent Ohio auction ("book $2800").  In actuality this is a poorly done re-numbered and "humped" 98k with the Nazi eagles having the swastikas defaced with a punch by whoever captured it back in 1945. The beech stock has grasping grooves on the forend and no provision for cleaning rod. It is in excellent condition and functional except for the safety (with will not engage without some adjustment or outright replacement). This should not have "fooled" anyone into thinking it was an original "all matching" 98k (but it obviously did).  Not import marked.  PHOTO . . . $950.  REDUCED!  $825.   C&R

Bore is very bright with strong rifling. Forend of stock has been shortened by 12" (as usual for these), stock is missing its wooden-plug on right side.  Not import-marked, very rare outside France.   PHOTOS . . . $850.*  REDUCED!  $750.*      Antique, no FFL required 

BRITISH Martini-Henry Mark IV long-lever single-shot rifle # 3311 (.577/450) mfg. by Enfield in 1887.  Very Good condition with much original bluing remaining and a few scattered areas of light porosity, legend on right side faint but readable.

  FINN Model 91/30 replica PU SNIPER Mosin-Nagant bolt-action rifle # YYOO5196 (7.62x54R), mfg. by Izhevsk in 1938 with [SA] Finn property-mark on left side of barrel-shank. Excellent condition with full bluing on all metal parts and a mirror-bright bore (NOT counterbored at muzzle). All serialized parts numbered (or renumbered) 5196  (matching), has long bent bolt handle,  Essentially this was standard Finn-captured 91/30 that Century International Arms expertly mounted a PU scope on (back in the early 1990's when they had tons of Finn Mosins and many spare Soviet scopes just lying around).  This rifle features a Finn stacked blade front sight (instead of the Soviet hooded post) and a low-wall round receiver, Finn bolt-type sling swivels and Finn green-leather military sling.   The optics are bright and clear, and this very rifle has proven to be an excellent and most accurate shooter by its previous owner.  The scope mount is numbered to this rifle, and it includes leather lens caps and fabric scope cover with correct 1976-dated PU scope paperwork.   The Finn 2-piece "potbelly" buttstock has almost no handling marks   The advantage of using a Finn-captured rifle to create a PU sniper is that the triggers are considerably better on the Finns than the standard Soviet rifle.  Original Finnish Mosin Nagant snipers are excessively rare.   PHOTOS . . . $1650.*    C&R
